There’s just something about playing at the Mecca that tends to bring out the best in NBA superstars. Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James have each been responsible for some of the greatest individual performances at Madison Square Garden over the years, and on Sunday afternoon, Anthony Davis made a comparatively modest addition to those annals.

Davis dropped a season-high 48 points, along with 17 rebounds, four steals, and three blocks, to lead the Pelicans to a 123-118 win in overtime. New Orleans trailed by as many as 19 before going on a 17-4 run to start the fourth quarter, which came on the heels of an incredible full-court shot from Davis to end the third that unfortunately came after the buzzer.
